On this EP Venetian Snares significantly breaks the mould with four tracks that he calls 'Cubist Reggae'. As a descriptor, it's apt, as these are basic loops and ideas taken from reggae but bent into strange angular sounds.

'Ever Apparent All Being Shoulder' cuts and chops an upbeat reggae rhythm into dramatic shapes, from which tentacled effects and melodies evolve, whilst all the time a sinister voice whispers dark intentions.

'Where You Stopped The Heaviest' brings downcast, shimmering orchestral chords over cavernous dub spaces, which are occasionally fractured with violent effects or sad melodies.

'The Identification Circles Levitate' starts by folding down a reggae melody into ever decreasing sharp shards, while a foggy melody builds over the top, the track then develops a burst of rave energy, before it closes down with the melody again.

'You Discovered The Secret And Juiced It For All It's Majesty' consumes the reggae and just leaves the cubes behind. Whats left of the loops are turned into rhythm, as drums are chopped up into neurotic dissonant patterns, dissolving into space before firing off at angles, as a seasick melody keeps the track centred.
